Coming from here: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1293303/#top
This weather is doing nothing for my wallet!! I could do alot of damage if this cold arctic air doesn't move out soon. They say tomorrow afternoon if will be close to 50, this is crazy it's 12 right now.
So im going freeze my CC and dream of my river of blue and hope the bulbs don't try to wake up tomorrow when it warms up.

Victor hope she is doing well as are you. Not still sick are you?

Found out why the road back from Stratton was closed yesterday afternoon. There were two horrible accidents, one in which a women skidded and then ran into an SUV. She died in the car fire, but the 2 other people in the SUV survived, but taken to the hospital. There was a second accident, a head on collision, about the same time a few miles away. People drive too fast in the snow, thinking cars today can drive through anything without a care. TV ads are so misleading.

DH went back up to ski again today. Weather is warmer about 25 and gray, no sun. This morning the snow has been sliding off the roof and the avalanche noise is scaring the dogs. That sound makes me very happy. When we did the renovation we put on most of the house a new standing seam roof, so that we don't have to go up and try to clear them of the snow anymore. I was always sure one of us would get hurt or that the roof would cave in with the weight of the snow. We got a couple of inches yesterday. Patti

Hoping to admit MIL to Hosp. She needs twice a day infusions of antibiotics for the resistant UTI before they can do the procedure. Either over $1000 to do at home or two, 30 mile trips per day otherwise. Nothing is easy with her.

I am staying in Brookline and during the night I heard a strange noise, but the roof stayed on so I went back to sleep. I found out that a storm door below the my bedroom was ripped off and thrown into the drive and with the glass shattering. They don't use this entrance ever so I think they will repair the frame and not replace the door. It was torn completely off, but we propped it back up to get it out of the drive and to take a picture. Lotta of wind. Patti

Reports about effectiveness of black elderberry, or sambucus to fight the flu. Even the ancient Greeks used it. don't try this at home, though because the preparation process is precise, or else it's poisonous. There are thousands of sites, but here's one:

http://www.webmd.com/cold-and-flu/news/20031222/elderberry-fights-flu-symptoms

They sell several brands of sambucus at Whole Foods. I found Nature's Answer on sale for $10.41 for four oz bottle. I really like the stuff.

And don't forget, the most powerful wand in the Harry Potter stories was elderberry.

The Webmd.com website was what convinced me to buy it. Jen gave me the recommendation for which to choose when you actually are sick. Webmd.com doesn't recommend taking the preventative dosage because it only works when the germ is present. Maybe this regimen would get the germ as soon as it appears!!

It was a beautiful sunny day here. My heather is in full bloom and it looks beautiful. I need more plants that bloom in winter.
I was looking through my kitchen window and saw that my neighbor has a tall bush with the most beautiful red stems. Tomorrow I must find out what it is.
Rosemary your job must be difficult on a day to day basis, I can't imagine. Make sure you put posters of flowers and gardens all around your office.
I work in a grey cubicle and looking at pictures of gardens helps me, mainly in the winter time.

Thanks for your sentiments, Rose. Currently I have posters of garden and forest vistas. My office is a semi- public place so I'm afraid to put something very personal or valuable there. I have some kid art of flowers on the bulletin board.

I am working on a new planting area that includes Arctic sun dogwoods. It will be a relief to get rid of the privet hedge encircling a black cherry tree and replace it with different winter interest shrubs including viburnums and dwarf JMs too.

What a beautiful winter day here in Norwich.
I have a clay pot of ornamental thyme outside. I usually bring it inside and this year I left outside. It is doing well.
It is very nice to spend my winter hours thinking about plants and dreaming about what I want to do outside.
I must clear an area for shade, since my lilacs came down with the storm and now I don't have shade and I must dig the roots of the lilacs. I am afraid I am going to destroy my candelabra primulas that I absolutely love. Maybe I will leave the trunks of the lilacs until the candelabras are out and then move them.

I spent my day waiting on Spring, gardening books, magazines, internet. I am all excited to start. I absolutely love lilacs, I do not want ever to live in a place where there are no lilacs. I lost my older lilacs with the storm, I only have one left, so I am going to give all my attention to it. I was reading that they like the ashes from the fireplace and one can spread them around from Fall until Spring. I go to the cabana, get my hand painted metal pail (beautiful winter scene) fill it with ashes and I am ready to put my coat on, get a flash light and go outside...
I stopped, I have germander next to my lilac. Does anyone know if germander likes the sweetness of the ashes?

I don't have germander, but I do spread ashes on my lilacs and the peonies in front and just about everywhere else because we have sandy nutrition-poor soil. There's a silver lining in losing lilacs. They burn a nice sweet fire in the fireplace. We lost our old ones to the neighbor's shade trees on the border and then planted new ones in a sunnier location.

So the weatherman starts this morning by showing a chart and saying the coldest part of the winter is over. YAY!
Then he slams me with this map of possible snowfall to hit us Friday into Sat. I am in the 12 -15" area...on the positive side my plants would like a blanket. They have been in 10 or less degrees with no blanket for a few weeks now.

Snow predictions for my area tomorrow range from about 20" to 35" of snow and hurricane force winds. My job is open until noon tomorrow because it's sometimes necessary for safety public safety, but I'll use judgement. They're still not sure what time the actual storm starts and where the worst storm location will be exactly. Several weather reports are predicting this will be among the top five snowstorms for the NE in the past half century. It's winter storm Nemo--made of the joining of the rain front from the south and the blast from the west, meeting in Boston. The Pacific storm is coming east to join in or maybe just to push the rest.

Please keep an eye on our Texas and Oklahoma friends too because they have their own storm front that could make tornados.

She is taking my brother, DH and me to holland to see the tulips in march. I thought she might be done with trips, but no. She is an energizer bunny. I am on slow ferry back to Nantucket. Calm but it is going to pick up to perhaps gale force winds, but not so much snow as many of you will be getting. Big flashing signs on highway leaving Boston advising of snow emergency. Many people I know in Boston area have no place except on the street to park, so they are scrambling tonight to find off street spots before noon tomorrow. Difficult. Be safe and warm all. Patti

All of our town's offices and schools are closed tomorrow all day and no street parking. Grocery stores weren't crowded yesterday but word is they are impossible today. At times like this I am very grateful that our house is in a high valley. We can handle the power outages. We can still see the higher part of our property and the houses nearby where the storms tend to do the most damage.

I have mixed feelings about being an "essential" government worker. I'd stay home too without a doubt if I didn't worry about what some people do to each other when they have cabin fever. We also had a run on petitions for commitments today, so law enforcement, detox centers or lawyers have to make the next decisions on those folks. Hospital workers don't have the option to stay home either. During the storm of 78, the psychiatric hospital staff just lived near the patients for a week.

Just stopping by here to say that you all are in my thoughts and prayers as what we are getting here as rain and wind moves up the coast towards you. Special prayers for all still reeling from sandy impact. Coastal flooding "high" alerts.

Down here we panic and up there you take it in stride. Hopefully each one will be the right mix that sees us all stay safe and warm as we wait for spring!

35 and flurries, but not sticking as it is more rain so far, but wind is picking up. I think everything, planes and boats, got cancelled this morning, so it is a good thing I made the last boat or I would be stuck in Hyannis.

My computer stopped working this morning which is beyond annoying as I had so much that I wanted to do with my photo's that I have downloaded on it while the storm was raging outside. DH just took it off to the electronic store to see if it is the power cord. They are still open as are many of the local stores here. He went to our old bookstore this morning to get a new book and they were going to stay open until it the roads start to be effected.

Pixie, stay safe with all your cold and the big dump you are likely to get. Everyone should do as you do in Maine, just cozy up with a good book or a pile of garden catalogs with family and friends and our furry friends. Fill the tubs with water, have plenty of wood for the wood stove and fireplace and have some food that can be eaten without cooking. DH cooked a meatloaf and a whole chicken yesterday to have on hand as we might lose power with all the winds we are expecting. We have a cooler outside if the refrigerator fails. He secured everything outside so we should have nothing flying about if we get some Hurricane force winds. Cars have been parked facing out so we can do Nantucket plowing if the snow starts to accumulate which is just going out every few min to drive up and back down the drive to keep a path open. Not many plows on the Island. It beats shoveling the long drive.

Wha, keep off your cross country skis while it is wild out, but I'll bet you have some good terrain to go over once the storm passes. Have fun then. Patti

Not bad here or in Boston earlier today. 33F gentle wind, just normally steady snow. I was happy that it was very easy to get around in the morning. It's great to settle down at home now though we're saving the fireplace on the assumption we'll lose power tonight. Hard to believe the prediction that we might get five feet tall snowdrifts in this region. If so, fences will not be able to contain any dogs once it freezes.

Wishing everyone a safe time with lots of comforts. One comfort I am relishing is the chance to test our new snowblower that is small enough so a car can stay in the garage too.

Poor birds. Not seeing any at feeders now. One dog is outside, so it isn't too bad here or she would want to come in. 35 out now.

DH just ordered me an early Valentine present as my computer is DOA. It must have died in the night as I was on it late last night and it was fine, but now it is not showing any signs of life. I guess it was time as it was at least 6 years old. I am happy as the new one will be a couple of pounds lighter, more GB, Ram, back-lite screen, etc. Now if the storm doesn't hold up the shipping, I will be back in business soon, though it could take a couple of weeks. I hope there are no problems downloading all my old stuff to the new one as we use Plum Choice to do automatic backups, so they should be able to transfer all my files to the new computer for us.

We are experiencing white-out conditions, extreme drifting, lost power for a little while, power came back on, cable came back on and now internet. Not sure how long it will hold on for so i'll give you an update now. We are @ 9 degree's with a 35 MPH wind, making it negative 15 here. We are gusting between 45 and 60, because of the winds we probably won't see positive #'s today. The dogs refused to go out, that tells me a lot!!!!!!
Hope everyone is safe and warm, blessings all, please check in when you can. :-)

Wind was wicked last night, at hurricane force at times and holding steady in the 60's MPH for a very long time. This morning it is still blowing a steady 35 to 40MPH with constant higher gusts. It finally got cold enough, now 27, to get some snow. But it is mostly blowing away. None on the roof but a few inches on the ground. Power went out for a short will around 11:30 but came back on within 20 min, then went out again a few more times during the night, but it is on this morning. Good job by the line crews that they brought over to help.

No transportation off Island, but who would want to face the mess on the other side? Big local news "The Harbor & Shellfish Advisory Board also warned islanders of the potential for a scallop stranding event along harbor beaches as a result of the storm's heavy winds." We probably will go out with other volunteers and fishermen to see if it is worth gathering up the stranded seed scallops and to throw them back into the harbor. Next years harvest. But because the temp is below 28, they will not survive even if put back into the water. The travel ban is not actually being enforced on the Island according to Chief, just encouraged, so in a bit we will go check on our work boat and a few houses that belong to off Island friends. Our front door screen is frozen shut and our dogs went out back door and now desperately want to come back in through the front door so they are standing out there barking. DH is going around the house to get them. Border Collies aren't always smart. Patti

20F here, snow is steady falling powder, sometimes blowing. It's all white and quiet outside. Since we have been fortunate to have power so far, we could even watch the trees until 3 am. Even the higher houses on our hill looked fine. It was interesting that the only movement in branches last night was in the very top of our white pine. There is still some treetop movement, but not alarming.

Snowdrifts are above my shrubs by the house. Our furnace vent was blocked and needed clearing. DH is busy building an exhaust pipe so snow wont clog the snowblower.

they said snow is 25 inches deep in Newton MA and 19" in Boston. Still less than the winter of 78 in this region but still snowing. Sky is grey.

Weatherman says there is a "band coming down from the north coast of Maine."

Snow has stopped falling. Not as bad as it might have been. In our area the light snow just doesn't stay on the power lines, but there's no telling when a branch somewhere will give way. Here's our snow dog during the blizzard at 1 am last night and a shot of today's cleanup. DH put a cowcatcher contraption on the front of the snowblower.

Not sure how much snow we got - some places it was a foot and others 2 foot or deeper with all this wind and drifting it is hard to tell. deck stairs were blown clean while the deck itself had close to 3 feet. sun is out birds (lots of blue birds) are all over the feeders and just in from clearing the driveway, front walk, and back deck and stairs.

That is a lotta snow up in Maine, but I guess there is a lot everywhere but here where it blew away. Our Vt town got a least a foot, but I keep hearing different amounts. But not there so it doesn't matter until it turns rock hard and we have to dig it out. We lost a few big branches off some cedar trees here in Nantucket. I wished one would have come down, but it is still standing. I don't like it where it is, but don't have the heart (yet) to chop it down. Patti

Still blowing a good bit. Snowing, but sideways still, so not much sticking. Almost a white out. Poor birds are mostly on the ground eating what is blowing out of the feeders. A few try to perch and eat from them but are getting blown off. We have a single very confused starling who is the odd one out. He must have stayed when the big flocks headed south. He tried to get in one of the bird houses but wouldn't fit. Feel sorry for him/her. Dogs are staying inside mostly as it is cold too. Temp is now 23 with steady winds in the mid 30's and gusts to high 40's.

DH measured 18" here. depends where one measures . Friend in Carlisle MA had 27", Portland ME 31.9. We did lose power in the evening as DH said that the stove was blinking at him this morning. Prediction: nice sunny day tomorrow & another storm coing from the west on Mon. At least not 2 storms joining this time.

If TWC is going to keep giving serious storms silly names like Nemo, someone else needs to take over.

Marilyn, I'm glad your Mom isn't badly injured, sorry otherwise things aren't so good... Sounds like a nightmare getting her out of there with all the snow. I hope you're all plowed out now.

Robin, long day for you. Sorry that the situation is so difficult, but glad she didn't break anything, but her pain sounds the same. Tough.

Finally found out that we got 20" at Vt house so DH may head up to plow and take a run or two down the mountain He loves fresh snow.

I always loved my grandfather's favorite comic strip Little Nemo and of course I so remember Capt. Nemo in the Jules Verne's novels. I named one of my all time favorite cats, Nemo back in the 70's after Little Nemo. I think Nemo is a better name than Bob or Fran for a storm and less offensive to many who have those names. I will hate the day they name one after me. Patti

Thank you so much, dear friends, for the well wishes...I was plowed out this morning, woot, woot! My paper was delivered! The snowbanks are monstrous...poor Suey disappears into the tunnel I was able to carve out on the back patio...hard to shovel snow that's shoulder high! Heading back to the hospital around 11...

debi_k, beautiful shots. Your property looks like a park. Nantucket is clear, sunny, still and 25. Lovely day. Went wandering about to see damage. Just the two big trunks on a cedar broken in half which leaves one still standing. I may take the whole thing down as it is a tree that we have propped after every major blow for years. Another one near by it came down years ago in a big storm, so I think its days are numbered. It is very near the burn pile so that make the decision even easier.

Pixie62560, Great that you did a run when it was below freezing for your brother in Oct. I couldn't even think about a 5k walk today Patti

Nice to have it nearby and not have to take care of it. Took DH to catch the Ferry as they are running again. He is driving up to Vt to clear the snow and check on the house. But mostly I think to ski for a couple of days. I spent a couple hours out grooming the drive and parking area so if we get rain and then a freeze we won't have big ice ruts in the drive. Still a beautiful day here. Now the dogs don't want to be inside. I am keeping them out of the area with all the bird feeders so the birds can stock up on food in peace. That single starling was huddled up on the porch behind the dog food bowl this morning, but I think our pair of resident hawks may get him as he is out of his element and no flock to protect him.
